The production is A1 with a clean beat.  he’s a versatile artist. Fr6nco isn’t new to the mag and his verse was creative with the production. Check it out below and see for yourself.


We invite you to discover his music right now and to discover our conversation with him below:

1.Tell us about your new song? And what’s the story behind it?

My new song Spaceship Swervin’ has 2 parts to it. At face value it is an upbeat song that was made to feel catchy and at the same time just a good overall cool vibe. But when I dive deeper to what I was saying there is some meaning behind it. As I have been making music I feel like I have been growing at a decently fast rate, where pretty much every song is doing dramatically better than the last statistically. Most artists’ goals in the beginning are to grow a fan base to where their music can be their income and a lot of artists want to get to a large level. Before making Spaceship Swervin’ I had this sort of incredible feeling lurking over me, that I am going to make my dreams become reality. So I wanted to make a song that kind of described this feeling as well as explains how I’m noticing changes in how people treat me due to my rise in status. In the chorus I explain how women are starting to lie more to get closer to me and men are starting to become “haters” and show jealousy toward me in my success. These are some of the examples of rhyming metaphors I use to talk about some of these changes I’m noticing as I continue in my music career. I wrap up the chorus by saying “then i skurt off in the whip i’m back to money chasin” which, simply enough put that, I acknowledge what’s happening and some of these things are cool, and some are not, but ultimately I am still focused on my goals.

 2.What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it?

What makes my music unique is a couple of things. I feel like at face value my voice and pronunciation of words is a subtle but unique factor. A lot of artists sound scary similar to other artists and I feel like I may sound similar, I still have a very distinct voice. Also I feel that I am a combination of two genres that are similar but you usually see one side or the other.  An example is feel like an inbetween of Travis and Juice, where I have an emo side, and then I also have an abstract side as well. Lastly is my diversity, I can work with just about any artist. I could sing next to Justin Bieber and at the same time be featured on a 21 savage track. I would still stay true to my style in the meantime, but no one beat or feature would scare me away.

 3.Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?

808s. & Escape is my proudest moment of my music career for 3 reasons. 1. I lost my brother in July of 2020 and this song was a direct way of how I was feeling in my point in my life about that loss. Shortly after he died I made a 4 song EP titled ‘Long Live Dion’ where the entire album was about him and my pain with losing him.  After a few months I still was struggling heavy with it. However the EP was a very depressing style and was very hard to listen to without crying. I wanted to make a song that I can still express how I felt but could be a song that I could bump in the car and not break into tears. A challenging aspect to mourn over a loss with lyrics but still portray a song that is playable in a positive vibe. 2. At this point in my career I was unable to break 10k streams on a song without a feature. This song is also my most successful song by myself, which to me was a pride thing. I love working with other artists, but there is always someone who will say “can you get those numbers by yourself?” and this song was just that, where I was still able to bring in comparing streams to my other songs, with no playlisting, no promotion, and no large artist to push or post it. 3. Back to my brother, without him being by my side, listening to every song before I release it, giving me the A-okay, this was really the first time I had to drop a song with confidence by myself saying, I know its fire and I know it will do well. I know Dion would agree, and tell me to drop it.

 4.How do you balance your music with other obligations – family, friends or work?

Balancing my music career with other aspects of my life is not easy. I put in many hours a week in the studio, pretty much eating breathing and sleeping music. I have several sources of income to where I am always busy with whatever it is I have to do to make money. On top of that I have 2 kids, my family, and a very large friend group. It’s not easy, and oftentimes people feel like they are getting short on me spending time with them. To put it in a nutshell, I never sleep. Some nights I will be up until 3am working in the studio, and then up at 6 am feeding my baby a bottle. It definitely sucks at times, but I am so focused on my dreams and goals, sleep isn’t what’s on my mind, I’ll have plenty of time to sleep when I make it where I want to go.


 5.What advice would you give to aspiring musicians? 

The number 1 advice I would give to aspiring artists is be true to yourself. The music industry is filled with people who want to be something they are not. You see people rapping about being hood and all this, yet they wouldn’t even know how to operate in actual hood environments, or some of these rappers talking about popping pills when they live a sober lifestyle. It may be easier to rap about certain topics, or maybe it’s even the wave you want to join, but you can only act for so long before the truth will come out and you will be pressed about the person you really are. 



6.If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be? 

One message to my fans is easy, we are a family and a team. I’m just now starting to get to a level where people are idolizing me, or looking/talking to me differently because of my likes or streams, and I’m still at a very small level so I understand that it’s only going to grow from here. Which is fine, I understand that’s how things are and if I were to meet Trippie Redd right now, I would definitely be a little star struck. But with what I’ve learned of meeting and working with “famous” people is that we are all still people. I want my fans to feel they can always reach out and talk to me, and although I wont see all my dms and comments etc. I will always be looking no matter what level I may reach.

7.What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?

So I am planning on dropping another single here in April, I don’t know the exact date but it’s going to be fire. I branch off a little and tackle more of a “harder” beat than what I typically would do. Project wise, I have been working on an EP that will most likely have 5 or 6 songs that I plan on dropping by summer. I also have some pretty major moves for my level planned for the remainder of 2021 that I don’t want to speak on, just know they are pretty big, and I am super excited to drop all of these songs.

Exclusive Interview With The Upcoming Artist “Las Guapo”

Published

on

1. WHEN DID THE IDEA TO BE AN ARTIST/PRODUCER BEGIN?

In late 2017 when I was working at sams club pushing carts and i went on Instagram to notice people like “Lil Pump” were blowing up and i thought to myself if someone like this guy can make music i know I can do it 10 times better.

2. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PROJECT YOU’VE WORKED ON TO DATE?

My favorite project always changes, it’s always the most recent thing I’m working on at the time.

3. CAN YOU ROUGHLY OUTLINE YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS – FROM THE BEGINNING OF AN IDEA FOR A PROJECT OR A COLLABORATION TO THE POINT OF COMPLETION?

It’s a lot harder than people think. A lot of people always try to catch you at your lowest and most vulnerable points. Always got to be on ten toes.

4. HOW IS THE REALITY OF BEING AN INDEPENDENT ARTIST/PRODUCER COMPARED TO YOUR EXPECTATIONS OF IT?

I really just go into the booth and talk about what’s on my mind or what I’m going through in the moment. Nothing is written, everything just off the top of my head! 

5. WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES AND DIFFICULTIES YOU FACE WHEN STARTING NEW PROJECTS?

Getting people on board to supporting my new ideas. I set the bar very high for myself so most people will think my goals are me putting a lot on myself at once but in reality that’s what keeps me going. I love the pressure.

6. WHAT DO YOU DO TO STAY CALM WHEN A PROJECT IS NOT GOING AS PLANNED?

Really I always have a set plan going into my releases so I do everything I can do avoid anything from not going to plan.

7. DO YOU HAVE ANY INSIGHTS, TIPS, OR ADVICE FOR SOMEONE STARTING LOOKING TO START THEIR MUSIC CAREER AND LOOKING TO GET INTO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY?

Take every opportunity you get even if you think nothing will come out of it. You can become successful just off a conversation with the right person

8. WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF IN YOUR CAREER SO FAR?

I definitely am proud of myself so far, but there’s no stand out moment that I’m proud of cause I won’t be satisfied until I’m at the top.

9. WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT WORKING?

I’m never not working. I have to be working at all times, if you don’t want to put in the work there’s always someone else that will. The key to this music business is good work ethic

Our passionate interview with PsychCloned

1. Tell us about your new song? And what’s the story behind it?

Spring Rush is my new single releasing to all platforms on March 18th.  I partnered with Ryan Jones and Space Hobo to help make this Jazzy Pop-Rock bop!  I wanted to release this single as a welcoming to the new season Spring which technically starts on March 20th.  If you close your eyes while listening to ‘Spring Rush,’ you can almost see the flowers blooming and the leaves returning to the trees.  This warm and upbeat instrumental track captures the feeling of a new beginning after a long winter in a way that words never could.  Guitarist Ryan Jones’ leads are playful and evocative, while drummer Space Hobo’s rhythms stretch out beneath constantly evolving harmonies.  The perfect soundtrack to a warm spring day.

2. What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it?

All of my music is instrumental but what makes my music unique is that it is genre-defying. I don’t like producing the same type of music over and over and over.  To try and keep the musical storytelling aspect of each song engaging, I try blending multiple genres and song styles into one piece and even diversifying my chord progressions and such so that no two songs sound alike.  Within each single and even within my albums you will find that each song is a journey telling multiple stories.  The magic of instrumental music is that I may have a story in mind as I compose and produce it but the Listener may very well experience something completely different.  Music has such a unique way of speaking to people that you never know what memories and images a sound will produce in their heads.

I also enjoy experimenting with new instruments that you may not hear in mainstream music so sometimes you’ll hear ethnic instruments from international countries make an appearance on a song.  I don’t want to limit myself to the instruments found mainly in the Western world as I firmly believe that every instrument wants and deserves to be heard.  As I gain access to more and more instruments you will be sure to hear them make a splash in my upcoming songs.

3. Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?

At the beginning of 2022, I released my 26-minute epic, Perlivash. I started my music-producing journey back in February of 2020 with almost no prior knowledge in music theory or digital music production.  I spent countless hours reading articles and blogs, as well as watching several YouTube videos to help myself learn all the nuts and bolts behind composing and producing music and songs.  I never would have imagined that in less than two years I would be able to compose and produce a 26-minute cinematic song.  Perlivash exemplifies all progress I have made throughout the years as it not only showcases my confidence in more advanced musical progressions but also shows just how vivid and wild instrumental music can get! If you have not taken a listen, this is the song I recommend all new listeners enjoy as it is a great introduction to the music of PsychCloned! 

4. How do you balance your music with other obligations – family, friends or work?

I make music out of pure love and enjoyment. It is something that birthed out of having a ton of free time at home due to the pandemic having forced us to live more indoors, so I don’t necessarily view what I do with music as an obligation or a career. I still have my full-time job in Marketing which I really enjoy and when I have spare time or when the wave of musical inspiration hits I work on music.  Music has and will always be a stress-relieving activity for me.  I don’t want to ruin my passion for music by transforming it into a job of some sort. 

5. What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?

If you love listening, playing, or making music, then do it!  Go out and show the world the stories and songs you have to offer! I know putting yourself out there is scary and not everyone makes it big, I mean I for sure am still a very small artist, but if you don’t give yourself a shot, if you don’t give all the billions of people out there the opportunity to hear your sound, then it is never going to be heard! You will never know if you are the next star in the music scene.  

Yes, getting started is probably one of the hardest things.  It takes time and money to make good music, but with any hobby or activity, even if you want to view it as a career, you need to put the time and effort to make it work.  Nothing in life is easy.  If you truly want something then you need to go out there and grab it with your own two hands.  Take that leap of faith and reach for the stars! 

6. If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?

Thank you all for your continued support throughout the last couple of years.  While I am still a growing artist myself, I love to know that there are many out there looking forward to my next releases.  It means the world to me to know that my music and sounds resonate so soundly with each of you.  I want to continue to spread joy and excitement over music so please continue to lend me your support as there are many more musical journeys for us to take.

7. What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?

Spring Rush will conclude my “Winter of Melodies” campaign.  Since the start of the new year I have released five singles: Perlivash, Leap of Faith, White Lotus, Full Throttle, and Spring Rush.  Each of these songs are a precursor to the new EP I plan to release this upcoming summer. If you have enjoyed any of the new songs then I think you won’t want to miss the new EP.  Be sure to follow me on your preferred music streaming platform to be immediately notified when the new songs release.  Alternatively, you can find me on Facebook and Instagram, via @PsychCloned, where I plan to post teasers and snippets of the song.  If you want to be the first to hear what new stories are coming, be sure to follow me on there as well!
